You’re a leader Charlie Brown

You're a leader Charlie Brown

A lesson from Charlie Brown on perseverance…

I know what you’re thinking: Charlie Brown is giving advice on being a leader? I’m as surprised as you are. I mean, I’m a pretty average kid—below average, most days. And I lose more times than I win.

But I’ve hit a game-winning home run, and I even won a game of marbles once, so I know what winning feels like. That next victory could be just around the corner… one more try away. So I keep trying.

Good grief—I think that could be it! So I keep trying.

On any given day, we can be as shy and withdrawn as Charlie Brown, as pushy as Lucy, as introspective as Linus, as raucous as Peppermint Patty, as zealous as Schroeder, as sunny as Sally, or as self-absorbed as Snoopy.

Yet, no matter our mood, each and every day, we all strive to be leaders in our fields, to our family, or of our own goals. Reflecting on what the Peanuts gang can teach us, we can unlock inspiration for each day of our lives.

CHARLES SCHULZ was an award-winning cartoonist best known for the comic strip Peanuts, launched in 1950. Over the years, this comic strip appeared in more than 2,000 newspapers around the world.

PS: Charlie Brown is also pictured on multiple postage stamps from worldwide countries. A great collectable :-)

Stamp collection is a popular hobby in Vietnam

IN THE NEWS: VietNamNet Bridge

 

VietNamNet Bridge – Stamp collection is a popular hobby in Vietnam that attracts many people from amateurs such as students and retirees to professionals. They collect used stamps with postmarks or new stamps without postmarks, or both to their liking.

An elderly man identified as Duc in HCMC’s Go Vap District says a lot of people prefer collecting stamps. Anyone can easily possess a collection of their own. However, there are not many collectors having striking stamp collections.

Stamp collection also depends on socio-economic influences. As a result, not a few people have to sell their collections while other collectors on the other hand have a chance to get access to these collections on this account, Duc added.

Another enthusiast named Le Minh Phong says, “I began collecting stamps when I was a child. For the past 10 years, I have frequented news organizations to search for stamps because these places have a lot of letters from readers.”

“I do not actually care about whether they are used or new stamps. I collect all because I have a great passion for this hobby,” says Phong.

Stamp collectors in the city all know veteran collector Do Thanh Kim, a consultant of the Viet Stamp Club. Kim has collected stamps since 1958 and now possesses many inspiring collections. Some have offered to pay him over VND20 million for a collection but to no avail.

Vietnamese stamp commemorating a centenary of Einstein’s birth. This is a very ordinary pin roulette as the teeth holes have lots of remainders still intact and the result is very uneven.

Happy stamping!
